The only question that remains after reading this is why they don't do it. Schools? Housing stock? Housing costs? Or is it a big cultural assumption -- that we are all supposed to have two cars and a backyard before we bring children into the world.

Two things to notice in this graphic: First, the substantial difference between electric and "average" (presumably diesel fueled) trains.

Second, and more importantly, that fuel efficiencies track practical (time-based) efficiencies. That is, trips over 500 miles -- fly. Trips under 500 miles -- train or bus. Trips up to 10 miles (if you're in shape for it) -- bike. So whether you're trying to save the world, or just save time, the answer is the same.

From now on I'm going to watch this Dutch Cycling Embassy video every time I feel like giving up on planning.

Negative induced demand is on display in LA. Maybe they only drive because of the 405? Its hard to believe a traffic study would have predicted this weekend's "unusually light" traffic.
